Choose Yer 'Weppins' (1935)

*** (out of 4)

Popeye is running a pawn shop when a man enters demanding to sell some knives, which aren't worth a dime yet he insists on more money. There aren't a lot of laughs here but the ones we do get are good enough to make this film worth seeing. The highlight of the film is when Popeye must prove to the man that the knives aren't worth very much money and he does this by trying to cut a piece of the man's hair, which of course doesn't work and leads to a funny joke. Wimpy also makes a short appearance as a cop who was originally taking the man to jail but gets sidetracked by a hamburger store.
